Military history talk at the Fox with Penny Burton

I’m a local historian (until recently I was living in the village) and I’m doing a series of military history talks at the Fox. The next one is 6th December and I didn’t know if you could include this?

Tickets are £5 and available at the bar. It starts at 7pm and the talk lasts about 1 hour with questions afterwards and a chance to view my collection of wwi artifacts.

Many thanks in advance,
Penny Burton
